10% of fires calls are false alarms. Find the probability that, out of 5 calls, there are 5 real fires. 10% of fires calls are false alarms. Find the probability of exactly 6 calls to the first false alarm. On average 3.2 fire calls are received per hour. Find the probability that at least one call is received in an hour. 1% of components are defective. I sample 5. Find the probability of at least one defective in the sample. 2
